Many things can cause abnormal vaginal discharge, including some STD's.
Vaginal discharge refers to secretions from the vagina. Thick, pasty, thin, clear, cloudy, odorless and offensive are a few of the descriptions one could experience.
The amount of mucus produced by the cervical glands varies thru out the menstral cycle. These secretions may turn white or yellow when exposed to the air.
Emotional stress, ovulation, sexusl excitement can lead to an increased NORMAL discharge. Sudden changes, i.e. color, consistancy, smell or a significant increase may indicate an underlying problem.
BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS: The most common type of vaginal infection. Symptoms include, foul smelling discharge that becomes more prominent after intercourse (fishy) The discharge is either gray or yellow in color.
One can get this by having more than one sex partner, IUD's and birth control and douching.
Doesn't sound like an infection. But as i stated earlier, any significant increase could mean something and should warrant a trip to the Doc.
